Subject: far less exciting than its title
If you happen to know German, this promotional film is only worth watching if you are interested in the German tenement market of the 1970s. The movie tells a short story about how greedy landlords can kick around unprotected tenants, and how the Mieterverein can help in such situations. The most exciting aspect of the movie is its title. Apart from that, you might better want to waste your time watching educational movies for say driving schools. I still give it one star, though, first for its shortness, and second for the 70ies music of its intro.

Subject: Mass Evictions Under Fire
Early 70s German experimental film that appears to be about mass apartment evictions, possibly for urban renewal. A middle-aged white man argues with a group of women, possibly about the evictions. This alternates with more experimental scenes, such as a scene of a drawing of the man spewing blood from his mouth. The theme music from Shaft is somehow involved. Itâs hard to make sense of this without understanding German, but there are some striking images here.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
